Tottenham talisman Harry Kane has been ruled out until April after the club confirmed that he needs surgery on a hamstring injury.
Kane suffered the injury during Tottenham's defeat at Southampton on New Year's Day. At the time of the injury, no timescale was given, but specialists have advised that the 26-year-old requires surgery.
As it stands, Kane will return to full training in April, two months before the start of Euro 2020.
"Following ongoing assessment by our medical staff over the past week, we can confirm that Harry Kane will undergo surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring," a Spurs statement said.
After the Southampton defeat, Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho said: "Everybody knows who he is, what he is, what he means for the team, the fans, the club.
"His quality, the routines that the team has playing with him, every minute of every game he doesn't play we miss, so every match that he doesn't play we're going to miss him."
Spurs currently occupy sixth place in the Premier League, some six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the race for a Champions League place.
As well as approximately 12 Premier league games, Kane will also miss his side's Champions League round of 16 tie against Germany's RB Leipzig.
Kane has scored 27 goals in 31 appearances for club & country this season.
